ACR, RHA Host Free Webinar for Physicians to Counsel Patients to Quit Tobacco

The American College of Radiology® is collaborating with the Respiratory Health Association (RHA) on a free webinar that will teach you and your staff how to more effectively set your patients on a path to smoking cessation.

The 60-minute “Counsel to Quit” webinar, Thursday, April 2 at 2 pm ET, will teach participants how to screen patients for tobacco use, engage in initial conversations about cessation and connect them with appropriate cessation treatment options. The free program is open to all providers and staff members who interact with patients during their medical care. Continuing Medical Education credits are available.

Research shows that just 3–10 minutes of counseling from a health care provider can increase an individual’s success in quitting by 60%.

Register today! For more information about the webinar, please contact RHA’s Lesli Vipond.
